Nkwazi Lake Lodge is a secluded nature retreat located in the wilderness of KwaZulu Natal’s Pongola Game Reserve. The lodge is elevated on a cliff that overlooks the Pongolapoort Dam (also known as Lake Jozini). It is made up of 12 en-suite chalets, each air-conditioned, with en-suite bathrooms, minibars, and tea-and-coffee stations. Each chalet also has its own private veranda from which guests can relax and enjoy the beautiful views. Enjoy a meal or a drink out on the dining deck after a day of exciting safari activities. These include game drives, guided walks, boating safaris, and rhino tracking. The reserve is home to a wide variety of wildlife species, including rhino, elephant, leopard, and giraffe.
Nkwazi is the perfect conference or team-building venue, with a fully-equipped conference centre and range of activities to choose from. It is also the ideal couple’s retreat (the elevated lodge position means that it is not recommended for children).
